Available data and gaps (BSF)

Consultancy assignment: GIS and Mapping for BSF Projects

  • Objectives:

  • To have GIS maps of all BSF’s units (schools, clinics, water points)

  • Incorporate existing GIS data from GoSS and EC / UN organisations

  • As per June 2009

  • Overview, not exhaustive

Available datasets: Health (1)

  • Health sector :

    • The national survey is still on-going, supervised by the Ministry and in collaboration with the Malaria consortium.

    • Five states have been surveyed, but data entry process is not completed yet.

Available datasets: Education (1)

  • Education sector

  • The EMIS system is functional, but no spatial reference was given to the school during their survey.

  • In parallel, the 2006 UNICEF database is available, with location of schools.

  • No plan to link up both databases is yet set.

Available datasets: Water (1)

  • Water sector

  • The WASH database, released by UNICEF, is updated by MWRI’s Information System Service.

Data gaps (1)

  • Administrative:

  • Administrative boundaries of payams and bomas is not well defined:

    • Payams boundaries layer is not reliable, boma boundaries layer is not available.

  • 5th Census:

    • Census data on demography not yet out;

    • No clear deadline is set for the release of the Census products.

Data gaps (2)

  • Health:

  • Survey data only available for North Bahr el Ghazal state (June 09)

  • Metadata (database information on context, content, structure):

    • information is missing or very poor

    • New initiative of D. Oremo and UN OCHA.


  • No data sharing policy: in general no policy has been set at the Ministry and public institution level, which makes it difficult to officially access soft copies of institutional databases.

  • No harmonization of overlapping datasets

  • No central updates

  • Lack of regular data collection


  • Are maps used for planning in your organisation?

Sharing of information: who is doing what and where?

  • Datasets available with BSF :

    • BSF funded health facilities (spatial)

    • BSF funded water points (spatial)

    • BSF funded primary schools (spatial)

  • Derived map products :

    • Health Facility State Map BSF_Health_facilities_NBeG_A1_final.jpg

    • Water Point - State MapBSF_Waterpoints_NBeG_A1.jpg

    • Primary Education - State Map BSF_Primary_education_NBeG_fformatA1.jpg

    • National maps

Sharing of information:


5 – 10 minutes

  • Mandate/ Rationale in GIS sector of the organization

  • Mapping activities

  • Data generate/ use/ available


  • There is an overlap in mapping activities. For example in basic services: MWRI database, UNICEF, CMRA, SNV, BSF. Other example flood risk mapping: CMRA, UNJLC, MWRI.

  • Institutions use different base layers which makes data sharing more difficult.

  • Data sharing is possible, however structure not clear, therefore coordination is needed – UNOCHA and SSCCSE are mentioned.

  • There are no protocols for updating and regular supply of new data by implementing agencies to ministries

  • The way forward
